Flood Defence Paint-on flood protection


Preventing flood damage with NanoShell BY JOHN ALEXANDER, REVETMENT UK


Once again, nanoShell’s stone sealer has been chosen to protect homes in high risk areas from flooding. The flood protection works are being undertaken for West Oxford District Council in the village of Clanfield.


In the summer of 2007, severe flooding occurred when torrential rain caused the brook to overtop, which resulted in flooding of a large area of the centre of the village with depths up to knee high. Since then, insurance premiums have risen for most homeowners – it is hoped that the use of new flood protection measures will not only eliminate the risk of water entering their properties, but also lower the insurance premiums.


The contract is being undertaken by Revetment, a national flood protection specialist. Their works included installing window and door barriers, as shown in the photos below, to prevent water entering through these openings in times of flood. This is a perfect solution for large openings, however floodwater will also pass through stone and brick walling.

In order to further protect homes and resolve this risk, Revetment are applying nanoShell Stone, a stone protection nano coating, to each building to a height of 600mm. This height is decided by the Environment Agency as the limit of possible floodwater.
